In August 1980, Robbins Barstow and his wife Meg, of Wethersfield, Connecticut, USA, went on a week-long trip to Newfoundland, Canada, to go whalewatching in the North Atlantic waters of Trinity Bay. Join them for exciting, on-the-surface, close encounters with giant humpback whales, and dramatic sightings also of finback and minke whales.

Great Newfoundland adventure to see whales
Excellent story and video by dedicated whale conservationists Robbins and Meg Barstow, who were founding members of the Cetacean Society Internationl. Good travel information to see Canadian-Atlantic whales. Great professional/ home movie, showing the enrichment-of-life by the whales.

Another Barstow Epic
Dr. Barstow shares his enthusiasm once again for all species of whales. It is fascinating to learn of the local history of Trinity Bay and share this ocean voyage with Robbins and Meg, two of my favorite whale watchers. Robbins has dedicated decades to the conservation of whales and they are better protected thanks to this American dynamo. I am always astounded at his cinematic tricks such as filming his own departure from a location.
